For last week's Thursday Blog Project, Sara asked us to: Share with us various photos from your life and give us brief descriptions of why they are so valuable to you. It can be personal photos, or otherwise (like professional/artist photos, etc.)
I don't normally participate in "Throw-back Thurday" (#TBT) on Facebook, however I made an exception this past week. Mainly it was inspired by this topic, and the fact that today is my dad's birthday.
Recently, I came across pictures from my Bat Mitzvah. There are pictures in this album of people who are long gone. Rather than be sad, it made me happy to see the faces of the many loved ones who aren't with us anymore - and this made me smile. One of those face was my day, Bernie... Or as I called him - "Irving".
I know every years on this date I write a sappy post about my dad, but I
hope this year's post is not just sappy, but also makes you smile as
much as looking at these pictures make me.
Whether or not it is, at the end of the day I prefer to concentrate on the fact that you can see in this picture how much my dad and I loved each other.
The pictures I posted today are just a small taste of the ones I've been happily looking at lately. The best part is that I finally decided to scan them in so I can share them with those that are still around.
Thank you to Sara for giving me even more of a reason to start the scanning process - and a reason to share them on my blog. I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate my dad's birthday.
Now that I've shared some photos with you, please take a moment to see what photos my fellow bloggers chose to share:
